It is no surprise that a custom window treatment is more expensive than what you would spend buying shades at Home Depot, so why do so many people still opt for the treatments? Well, in a few simple words: it is worth it. Stores that offer window shades, blinds, or curtains offer just that and nothing else. I have only ever found a couple of choices within each of those categories and there are so many more things that you could do with your windows. But if you are looking for shades, blinds, or curtains, you will only find so many styles to choose from and there might not be one that will match your room or your style perfectly.
There are so many details that you get with custom window fabrics that you can’t with store-bought “ready-made” treatments. Although there are some nice fabrics to choose from in the stores, they don’t come custom-sized to your windows and that can be frustrating. I can’t tell you how many times I have tried to make what I found at the store fit into the windows of older homes or even brand new windows and it just doesn’t end up looking right. Window treatment designers create something unique for you so you know you won’t spot the same thing in someone else’s home or office. The crafstmanship that you see with custom treatments, even in the shades, cannot compare to the store items. The stitching and detail is made to last but can also be easily repaired by the designer. If something goes wrong with the item that you bought from the store you have to call a customer service line and once you finally talk to someone they might make you just buy another. Custom treatments bring the whole room together and will last for years, that alone makes them worth the investment.
Even if you don’t know exactly what you’re looking for, custom window treatment designers will show you what might look good with your room because they have the experience to back it up. They can work with your budget and won’t push ideas on you that aren’t right for you. In the end you can both agree on something that will look amazing. A lot of people also think that getting custom window treatments will bring all of the focus on the windows and that they will overwhelm the rest of the room but this is definitely not true. Custom window treatments are meant to blend and tie together the room, not blow it over. Unless that’s what you want them to do, of course. But every person and every room is different and window treatment designers and services put that fact first when approaching each new client.
All in all, it is definitely worth your time to consider custom window treatments over the store-bought kind the next time you are designing a room. They will be more expensive in the beginning but will last much longer and will come with custom craftsmanship and details that match your whole room.
